Princeton Reunions

Back from my 20th Reunion at Good Old P.U.

My big conversation-starter line this year: "If you watch House for the establishing shots, you just might be a Princetonian."

A good time had, much beer and soda drunk, much exercise had walking from the tent to the kosher dining hall to the old eating club and back, several times a day.

Many connections reestablished and reconfirmed. Reunions, after the first few years of "look what a great job I have, what a great {business,law,medical} school I'm attending, etc.," becomes about creating and retaining connections with people. Shared experience gives a strong base for continuing friendships.
